gUiTS with

blouses re v e a I e d by jachets ajar, suits worn with cartwheel hats, suits with ani mated skirt width are some of the import ant factors in spring fashion.

fPHIS will be a special ยป year of beautiful suits

?of immaculate tailoring and new elegance of line.

Some suit jackets have grown longer, but the

best ones are short. Be cause many couture de signs feature the open jacket, blouses are of great importance.

Whether seen or not, they are part of the new suit story.

It is no exaggeration to say the two-piece suit that goes without its blouse or separate top makes a

fashion mistake.

Skirts are knee-tipping in length and mainly flared or pleated. At Dior they are square-cut. Car din makes original use of raised tucks (example far right).

Black-and-white checks and plaids are back, rose pink and mauve are im portant, and white and orange a favorite Paris

color union.

Big, shady hats have taken the stage on the

suit scene. This new

alliance looks surprisingly cool and colossally chic. Even in the strongest spring breeze, it will be well worth hanging on to a large-brimmed hat.
